Pollinator Series 2020- Bees, Birds and Beyond!

On every Thursday, EcoReach has been giving lectures to students at Malcom Bridge Elementary School about pollinators. This will be an ongoing series where students get to learn more about pollinators, the process of pollination, and the ecosystem services they provide!

The students learning about flower structure

In the last lecture, students were introduced to four key pollinators groups: birds, bats, bees, and butterflies (lots of b’s!). Our speakers provided fun slideshows explaining the intricate process of pollination. Students also got to see a slow motion video of the pollinators in slow motion that show cased the adaptations vital for pollination.

Some of the students were excitedly drawing illustrations and taking notes of the pollinators presented on screen

Over the upcoming weeks, more lectures will be given that will go into finer detail about the powerful relationship between pollinators and plants. Each of the four pollinator groups will receive more attention, so stay tuned for updates as the students get informed on the world of pollinators!
